saw someone like andrew jackson or harry truman campaigning against congress well and good. but it's only in recent years that you've had this almost nuclear game of chicken that we're seeing now. and we also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we are seeing and how much actual damage we are seeing inflicted. i me
. in january, 42 separate murders. now jesse jackson who lives there begging for the federal government to help. >> we must stop these murders, killing of our very young. killed already, numbers bigger than iraq and afghanistan. we need help, more than we have to date. we need federal intervention. >>brian: to make matters worse the chicago police department says it no longer is resourced to take every 911 call. joining us now is senior judge analyst judge napolitano. judge, do you blame them? >> the police always prioritize just like an emergency room in a hospital prioritizes. you save life first and property second. but when they announce to the city of chicago and to the world we're not going to deal with property crimes, don't expect us to respond to 911, that sends a message to the bad guys that everybody is fair game if it's just a property crime. >>brian: homeland security, there is a call from jesse jackson to get homeland security involved in chicago. it's a panic situation. >> that's not the job of the federal government. it's the job of the city of chicago to maintain health and saf
was paid $2.5 million to perform which she didn't. michael jackson older son prince landing his first job. the 16-year-old will be a special correspondent on entertainment tonight. the move, a good one for jackson says he would like to follow his famous father's footsteps. >> police have the right to arrest the mentally ill on the street for skipping their medication. it's a question that has come up several times in the wake of multiple mass shootings and subway attacks. new york city police are taking one step past that. they are putting most wanted list of mentally ill patients and officers plan to arrest them. what would our constitution say about that? judge napolitano joins us now. >> you always give me the easy questions. >> gretchen: we might have a lively discussion, it's an issue that is complicated. if i come to new york city, you see mentally ill people walking on the streets many of them homeless and its dire situation. you say that rounding them up and rescuing is unconstitutional? >> it's clearly unconstitutional because the constitution says the only way i can arrest someo
when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to damascus to beg for the release of an american pilot who had been shot down by the syrians. drones are clearly the wave of the future because they save american lives, but they're also effective for surveillance. they have far greater use than simply the kind of fighters we've used, and we actually also use them for domestic purposes. they were reportedly used in the case of the 5-year-old who was held in alabama. they have been used for weather. there are an estimated 8,000 drones, so although it's part of the most secret program, military program, we have, there are also other uses. >> which starts to frighten folks domestically. good thing with the outcome of that alabama case, but some folks think their civil liberties are about to be infringed upon at home. dan, i know from your reporting and the book you wrote, there was more debate within this administration about the transparency aspect of it than there was whether they would engage in a drone program. explain that. >> well, that's exactly right, and that comes up significantly
ahead of the special election for jesse jackson junior's vacant seat. next, 85%. that's how many businesses in new york city south street sea port area are board up from hurricane sandy. a local law maker estimates 450 jobs have been lost. and 3.78. that's how much a gallon of gas is going for today. prices have skyrocketed 20 cents over the last two weeks and continue to rise. boo hiss. >> peter: you couldn't start the season any better, jimmie johnson, he's thrilled about the win, but also remembering the 28 fans hurt in this weekend's crash. >> i wanted to get the start of the 500. we knew it was the best car for us and very happy to have it in the 500 and certainly did its job for us. and i want to give a big shout out to all the fans and want to send my thoughts and prayers to everybody who were injured in the grand stands. >> peter: that's getting everyone's attention. seven people are still hospitalized this morning. wofl's ray live outside the hospital in daytona with the latest. hi, ray. >> good morning to you. that's right. as you mentioned, seven nascar fans who were i
's pining for the carter days. and certainly i mean he didn't control his own party. he had scoop jackson, democrats, hawks, abandoned carter and ted kennedy liberals abandoning him. what we can do is start looking at what it was like in his one term. just like we'll have a revision with president 41. carter did some great things in alaska and our national parks service. carter doubled the size of the national parks. and he saved all these great wilderness areas. well, it may not seem that big to you now. about 50 years from now when the rain forests are dead and so much of the world has been in ruin, saving all these bits of wild america will look like a greater achievement. only theodore roosevelt and fdr was a better conservation president than jimmy carter. >> how much would pop culture have an impact on some revisionism as far as jimmy carter is concerned? for example, the film argo? >> i think it's helpful because it's put -- it shows that film. i think the carter administration was trying desperately to get rid of those hostages. they were always between a rock and a hard place. wh
